Noticed this article while browsing through Arkham City's trope listing, and also noticed it was imageless. Made me think of the topic we had Talking to Themself a few months ago... where rodneyAnonymous actually suggested a pretty good image/caption combination in post 25, which we almost ended up using, but ultimately didn't. Anyone else think it's good enough to repurpose for this trope, or have a better suggestion?

A great example would be the magic mirror from Mirror, Mirror, but GIS didn't turn up anything good.

MOVE, B****! GET OUT THE WAY!
Actually, that is a good picture. I was gonna suggest a 2 part picture of Gary Busey talking to himself from that Family Guy joke during the Christmas episode.

I'll suggest this, then see if I can find a version without that stupid tag.
Belief or disbelief rests with you.

I like the OP's image, though it could use a different caption.

[up][up] That's good.

In case anyone doesn't know, that's his dialogue from that scene; he's talking to his mirror.

It's not :( It is J. Jonah Jameson's dialog. He says that to Peter, earlier, in reply to Peter's accusation of slander against Spiderman. Thought it was funny more than I thought it was relevant.

Norman is talking to the mirror though.

[up] ...dang, you're right, I'd forgotten that. In that case, it really doesn't belong.

Both suggestions are good. I think Poppins is clearer, though. That's more the mirror talking, while the Norman one is talking to the mirror.
The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.
In uffish thought
Here's the Magical Nanny at wiki size, not that that's much of a change from the previous version of the image:

The clock's up. I put up the Mary Poppins pic since it's much more clear that the mirror is the one doing the talking on its own. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
